This was sketched out pretty quickly to decompress after working on a much more intense project. It was inspired by a scoreless indie animation video I saw on youtube that seemed to need something like this. The production on the solo guitar bit still kind of bothers me, but it's time to move on to something else. The only other work I'll probably do on this is to make a loopable version for the sleepfacingwest.com site, and maybe make a version without the solo and melody so it can be more flexible as background scoring material.

This is one of those times it feels like I've ripped something off. That said, it uses plenty of tropes appropriate to the genre, and while the feel of the track reminds me of a lot of other music from this era, I'm hard pressed to find anything that I've subconsciously copied. As far as I can tell, it just feels more familiar than it actually is?

I love the flowing, old-timey, feel-good easy-going vibe of this song. I love the solos, ABA structure, and transitions. That ending was so heartwarmingly characteristic of jazz. High-quality content here, man! I might encourage you to experiment with vocals as a next step. ;)
